VERITY LUSH: Yet another example of distasteful American influence sweeping the UK

Have your say

Singer Alison Moyet has been reported as saying that she thinks she’s lost too much weight, going down from a size 22 to a size 10.

I agree with her. She looks like she has lost a bit too much weight.

But I wouldn’t mind being in her predicament for a while, ie needing to put ON some weight.

There’s a balance out there for all of us when it comes to our figures.

It’s funny though, isn’t it? We’d never call someone too fat to their face, and yet we happily tell people that they are too skinny, and that they should try to eat more.

Why is this?

Maybe Alison Moyet’s comments come at just the right time and serve as a reminder to us all that being too thin can be as much of a nightmare as being too fat.
